The trout opener coinced with a working party at the hatchery.
I suspected that the hatchery would probably be the only place
on this day where I could see trout so I took some pics and
made a little video to remind me how trout looked.

At the hatchery

With the work all being done it was time to head out to the stream.
I fished the deeper pools with a heavy streamer to coax out any stockies but 
unfortunately nothing moved.

As I encountered plenty of footsteps on the banks of the stream I figured
I was not the first angler to visit the spot.

Maybe the first few fish that where stocked where already cleaned out.

In a last ditch attempt to avoid skunk I headed to the headwater to
see if any roach where active but alas nothing came out to play.

So fishing was a bust today but at least I did something good at the hatchery.
As it has been too cold for a very long time I suspect that it will take quite some
time for the stream to get to life again.
In the mean time I will keep on trying, one day it will change for the better :-)
